Riyad Mahrez scored the winner as Manchester City beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium, our eighth-straight victory in all competitions.
The Algerian’s goal capped a fine display from the Blues, who managed 82 per cent possession and 23 shots on goal.
It was total domination.
“We defended very well, they didn’t have too many chances, so it was the perfect afternoon and perfect game for us,” Mahrez said afterwards.
“We did a very good first half. The second was good as well but the most important thing was to avoid chances for them on the counter-attack.
“That’s what we did, and we are happy, and we’ll take it.
"We had to be very patient. We know we can always create chances – so we just need to be patient and move the ball quickly and then if we can find some space we can score.
“It’s always like this when we play away and you are winning by only one goal. You always think they can come back.
“Now Liverpool play tomorrow so we will see. There are still nine games left so there is a still long way to go.”
